You will now need to set the Directory setting for your broadcast. The Directory setting is optional but will allow your station to be listed on the Nullsoft Shoutcast website at www.shoutcast.com.
The Directory settings allows your listeners to see what is currently playing and what the name of your station/website is.
To access the Directory configuration, click the button labeled Directory to the right of the "Connection" button.
You should now see a dialogue window that looks like the screenshot above. If you would like to make your radio station (server) public, or in other words listed on the Nullsoft Shoutcast website at www.shoutcast.com you should check the checkmark labeled "Make this server public".
Under the field labeled "Description", you should enter the title of your radio station or broadcast. An example would be "Primcast sample radio station" or "Johns Music" - this field can contain any alphanumeric entry including general punctuation (periods, semi-colons, asterisks, etc.)..
Under the field labeled "URL" you should enter the website of your radio station, your personal website, or a website that pertains to the stream itself.
Under the field labeled "Genre" you should specify what type of music or content you are streaming. For example, if you were broadcasting a live talk show you could enter in this field talk or live talk radio. If you were broadcasting a Rock show you could specify Rock and so forth.
